The Transitional Housing Program consists of fifteen housing units for homeless families. The maximum allowable stay in the Transitional Housing Program is 24 months which provides time for families to stabilize and also enables many homeless families to be helped over time.
The Emergency Shelter is open 24 hours a day and families may reside in the Shelter for a maximum of three months. The Shelter's current capacity is thirty women and children who are generally referred to PV Shelter Services by other social service agencies, schools, civic and/or religious organizations.
The majority of our clients are Latino/Hispanic (approximately 80-90%) and many do not speak English. Most resident families can be classified as "severely poor," defined as those families whose income is less than one-half the federal poverty threshold.
